I downloaded this book from the Amazon site for free... just another in a long line of so-so books, I thought. I was truly surprised at the depth of this novel. The characters are well drawn, with the good and bad in each that make them feel real. The story is tough, but compelling. We follow Caroline from her youth as she faces hardship and tragedy to finally be the woman she was destined to become. The separate lines are woven together in an interesting and believable patchwork. Even though you see the final result coming for several chapters, the trip is more than the destination. I definitely recommend this book!

The book present a very good story in addition to an excellent cast and selection of characters. Now the main issue I had with this book is that gave me more the impression of a movie script, there is very little conversation between the characters and Carolina and Jacob meet each other almost at the end of the story. I found the end also extremely rushed and unrealistic; the author spent so much time describing the life and thinking of family and friends not really essential to the major sub-plot and then in 3 pages Carolina and Jacob are proclaiming their mutual love to the world. Anyway, I truly think this author has the talent to write a good story and I'm sure that many readers will enjoy "Carolina".

I think this book has potential but the author lacked focus. She tried to tell too many people's stories at once and it wasn't necessary. So much time is spent telling not only Carolina's story but every single person she comes into contact with AND the entire adult life of the person she eventually falls in love with AND everyone he ever knew. I was interested in Carolina's story but found myself flipping through page after page of these other people's stories. I felt it detracted from the novel. In fact, it was hours into the book before the two main characters even meet. And now, after all of this waiting to hear about their "romance" the author really spends very little time developing it. It's like they magically fall in love and know they are meant to be. I don't think this book should even be listed under the "Romance" category of fiction. It truly is more of a story of life and romance happens to be a small element.

I can't quite bring myself to give this story a 3 star review. Especially after seeing how many books that are far worse walk away with 5 star reviews. I think if the author went back in and edited herself this could be a riveting novel. The main character somehow maintains her love of others and her sweetness through some of lifes worst events. This is a story of someone overcoming adversity in their life, complete heartbreak on many levels, and staying true to being a good person. I think it's a story that needs to be told and I hope the author will tweak it a bit. It has a lot of promise.

Carolina was surprising to me. I wasn't surprised at the quality of the writing because I have seen Heather Matthew's work before, but I was surprised that I could be so enthralled with the book that I would read it over the course of one day.

As other reveiwers have noted the book follows two very different human lives leaving you to guess at how they will become intertwined. It read like a modern day Cinderella story but to simplify it into such a confined space would be wrong. It is so much more than that.

Mrs. Matthews gives such a rich and intricate tapestry about each character, not only the main characters, you can't help be feel sympathy, heartbreak, compassion and a dozen other emotions for them.

Buy the book and be sure to have a few hours to read once you start. You will find Caroline (Carolina) intriguing and her life uplifting at the same time.

Congratulations, Heather Matthews. I look forward to your next novel!

I was pulled in by the price (EUR 3.44) and the reviews.

The free sample included lots of formatting errors (no spacing around italicized words). I'd hoped it was just because it was a sample, but no, the full version was the same. Annoying, but I got used to it.

The characters (as S.Walls reviewed) are really one-dimensional, there are few dialogues, and the writing really seems to be targeted to simpler, unsatisfied housewives ("A true Gemini...", "..to expose his swollen manhood..."). The grammatical and contextual mistakes are thankfully somewhat infrequent, but also present.

I was expecting something stimulating or moving, an 'epic' story. It's been more of an easy, trashy read.

This book suffered from lack of a good editor. The grammar was terrible, words were run together, and characters names randomly misplaced (ie using the name Clara when the context clearly indicated Carrie.

Worse was the lack of editing in the structure of the novel. There were times when the author brought a character forward through several years then abruptly switched to another character in present day time.

The ending felt like a rush job. At the very end, the two main characters met fell instantly in love brought their families together -all in the last 20 pages. With a little attention, this could have been a much better novel.
